Zurich, July 14
The Swiss Indoors tennis event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Organisers say will probably be “irresponsible and logistically difficult to go ahead” amid uncertainty about public well being and the financial system.
Tournament head Roger Brennwald says “social distancing or matches played behind closed doors were out of the question for us from the start.”
Roger Federer is a 10-time champion on the event in his hometown of Basel however he was set to overlook the 50th version of the occasion.
He is skipping the remainder of the 2020 season to let his proper knee get well from two surgical procedures. AP
